Feminist Theory and Practice in the African Diaspora

Apr. 17, 2013
12:00 PM – 2:00 PM
206 Ingraham Hall

How should African diaspora scholars understand popular constructions of black men as an endangered¬Ě species? What are the possibilities and pitfalls of queer black studies? How do we recognize African diaspora feminism when we see it?

The African Diaspora and Atlantic World Research Circle is pleased to announce the schedule for Gendering and Queering the African Diaspora - a three part discussion series that brings together speakers from the social sciences and the humanities to interrogate these and other important questions about the contours of African diaspora scholarship.

Please join us on April 17 for Feminist Theory and Practice in the African Diaspora, the third discussion in this three part discussion series.
